Pain Assessment For Residents With Communication Issues

Persistent pain is common among older persons, who can be likely to suffer from chronic conditions such as arthritis. A person with dementia can have difficulty communicating feelings or thoughts, and may have an inability to express if pain, exists. A major cause of agitation and aggression can be due to untreated pain. This assessment tool ensures the nurse or carer accurately assess pain by observation and previous history of pain or a painful condition.
